A timely subject as I dust off the gears and get this machine back in order again. To reflect and consider what keeps me going as an anime and manga fan, and/or writing on them.
Not itself an anime, this is more of a bonus.
But it has so much to do with anime I would be remiss to not look back on it as part of these posts.
This Week: Purple Eyes in the Dark (Yami no Purple Eyes).
A lycanthropy-leopard lady, and loves lost or located.
In the September 2014 issue of Kodansha’s Monthly Afternoon manga magazine, Riichi Ueshiba’s Mysterious Girlfriend X (Nazo no Kanojo X) ended a run stretching back to August 2006. If one goes back far enough in the history of this blog, the 2012 anime adaptation of Mysterious Girlfriend X was among the first things I had commented about in the initial post.
Things have, of course, changed a lot with the blog since that time.
With the manga ending, I thought it would be appropriate to revisit where we essentially started.
This 1967 film, courtesy of director Nagisa Oshima, may well be the most literally accurate movie length adaptation of a manga ever created.
